IMAGES OF EDEN- REBUILDING THE RUINS (Released- March 1, 2011)- Images of Eden's 3rd release, "Rebuilding the Ruins", combines a very dynamic sound with a wide range of metal/ hard rock styles, ranging anywhere from rock to power metal. The CD combines thought-provoking, inspirational lyrics, stellar musicianship with complex compositions and an honest and powerful vocal delivery, keeping the technical and unpredictable aspect alive but with very accessible hooks and melodies, picking up where the previous release, Sunlight of the Spirit" left off.

This 74 minute concept CD was mastered by Grammy-nominated producer, Eric Zimmermann (Fates Warning, Limp Bizkit, Deftones, Buckcherry, etc.).

DREAD THE FORSAKEN- UNBOUND (Released- November 23, 2010)- Unbound is the debut CD from my band from Guatemala City, Guatemala. Dread The Forsaken combines classic power and traditional metal with modern thrash and metalcore elements. This is a highly energetic sound with raw intensity, fast drumming, frantic guitar riffing and catchy vocal hooks. Definitely for fans of Disturbed, Godsmack and Mudvayne to early Anthrax and Iron Maiden.

The song, "Give Me Wounds" was included on "Auditory Assault II" compilation released by Bare Metal Records. A large quantity of these CDs were sent to the MSO for our troops overseas in Iraq/ Afghanistan and all sales proceeds are to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

It also picks up right where "Chapter I" left off. This was the first "official" international release by Images of Eden.

Several of these songs were written when I was in my previous band, Midnight's Tide.
